Recent Thoughts

From Tweet Street

NY pickpockets weren’t our biggest worry…

So, apparently we were taking our life in our hands with our recent trip to New York. Of course we expected the need to clutch backpacks and handbags a bit closer than usual, and to keep an eye out for the cops when browsing for bootleg purses. But, as we boarded our ferry each morning and evening to and from our hotel on the Jersey shore, we never thought to keep an eye on the skies above and watch for falling objects.

As it turns out, we should have kept our eyes out for falling aircraft. At least twice a day, we crossed the flight paths of both US Airways flight 1549 and of this weeks’ mid-air helicopter / small airplane crash in the Hudson River. All three doomed aircraft splashed into the waters mere yards from our hotel. Glad we turned down the helicopter tour!

Here’s a short virtual tour showing our ferry landing and hotel in relation to the two crash sites. Both crash locations are based on US Coast Guard latitude and longitude coordinates and flight record data.
